Because smaller-than-small bags are not going anywhere soon, here’s another pair of tiny wonders courtesy of Celine’s new Plein Soleil summer capsule. Besides plenty of statement-making bags and SLGs that come emblazoned with the oversized Triomphe logo in front, there’s also this, the Mini Besace Cuir Triomphe in smooth calfskin leather.
At 11 cm wide and 10 cm high, this nifty little bag is perfect for keeping absolutely nothing within the leather Triomphe snap closure. Jokes aside, tiny bags aren’t supposed to hold much; they are to be regarded as an accessory to complete your look, layered on as the finishing touch.
Each bag is sold together with a thin leather strap (an adjustable drop length of 50 cm), allowing the Mini Besace (‘besace’ in French translates to messenger) to be worn over the shoulder or across the body as intended.
The tone-on-tone Cuir Triomphe logo gives the Mini Besace a cohesive look, and you can look forward to 2 classic colours (Tan and White), which are now available via Celine Singapore’s online store. Retailing at SGD1500 a pop, the Mini Besace Cuir Triomphe is truly as cute as it gets. And remember, it is an accessory, not a bag…
